Full lockup on A7N266-VM/AA with 9631
 
Hi all.

Don't think I can give much useful information about this crash as the machine locks cold and can't be SSH'd after crash. However, if there's any data I can get for you that would be useful, tell me.

I have an A7N266-VM/AA which is a Geforce2 chipset. Ubuntu Edgy system, fully updated.

Anyways, I've been running 8774 for ages. Tried the beta 9625 awhile ago, and got compiz to work a bit, but with terribly poor speed and serious instability, so I stuck with 8774. I've never seen accelerated openGL out of this card whatsoever under Linux, which is a shame.

Now that 9631 is out I thought I'd try it. Well on X server startup, it shows the green NVIDIA logo on a black screen, then displays only the little gray box where the login name would go and refuses to do anything else. No mouse movement, no network connection, nothing. Once some beeping came out of the PC speaker.

This is much like what 9625 did until I applied a patch somebody posted here. Perhaps 9631 needs the same patch for this card?

Looks like support is going to be discontinued for these cards from the look of it, shame that the last release is broken for my board.

The 1.0-96xx legacy driver branch isn't going to be discontinued any more than the 1.0-71xx legacy branch isn't going to be discontinued.

If you'd like further assistance, see:

Good to know there's hope of seeing a new version. I assumed since it didn't have its own link on the download page like 71xx, it had just been dropped in the latest version, as I had to dig it out of the archive.

It would be nice to have a direct link on the driver page as well as maybe a list of supported cards?

Anyways I tried all those things on that linked page already.
Found my old thread from 9625, looks like some other guy posted there having the same problem as I am with this board... no solution though.
